Hoopleheads and C*cksuckers: An Al Swearengen Clip Reel
For whatever reason, I’ve been taking the old Deadwood DVDs out for a stroll as of late, catching up on the citizens of my favorite turn-of-the-century lawless border town. This will be my third time through the series, and I’m amazed at how much new intricacies of the show I’m just catching onto. Much has been made of the show’s labyrinthine dialogue, and rightfully so. Even now, during each hour-long episode, I spend about an extra half-hour just rewinding to hear what the hell they’re exactly saying. But what I’m even more struck by is how the show so deftly navigates between remarkable violence, dense scheming, and just utter and complete hilarity. And no one captures all three elements quite like the great saloon owner himself, Mr. Al Swearengen
So let’s take a look at some of Al’s Greatest Moments. If you didn’t catch this groundbreaking HBO show when it was first on, take a gander below and see if it’s your thing. (There are small spoilers, I guess.) If you’ve already seen all three seasons, then just sit back and enjoy.
(NOTE: Obviously, there’s some real bad language and graphic violence in the following clips. Consider this fair warning to turn down your speakers if you’re manning an office job.)
